Saudi Arabia says guard killed by land mine on Yemen border
ombings have been routine since a Saudi-led coalition began a war in March 2015 against Yemen's Shiite militias known as Houthis
Saudi Arabia's Interior Ministry says a border guard has been killed by a land mine near the kingdom's frontier with war-ravaged Yemen.
An Interior Ministry statement issued late on Tuesday says the guard died in the Saudi province of Jazan, along the mountainous border the kingdom shares with Yemen.
The statement did not say who laid the land mine. However, such bombings have been routine since a Saudi-led coalition began a war in March 2015 against Yemen's Shiite militias known as Houthis.
